<ul><li><p>How to Help Your Child Prepare </p><p> For College </p><p>The fall of senior year in high school </p><p>can be a nerve-racking time for teens </p><p>and their parents. But it's also exciting </p><p>to help your children plan the next </p><p>stage of their lives. </p></li><li><p>Most college deadlines are January 1, </p><p>but the work of preparing applications </p><p>should begin long before that. It's </p><p>recommended that people begin </p><p>exploring colleges they may want to </p><p>attend during their junior year. </p><p>If you can't make long-distance visits </p><p>to colleges out of state, at least make </p><p>an effort to visit those that are close to </p><p>home. Go to college fairs with your </p><p>teens at their schools or those nearby, </p><p>as well as presentations by college </p><p>representatives who may be visiting a </p><p>city near you. Colleges place a lot of </p><p>stock in students who show a sincere </p><p>interest in attending their schools, so </p><p>talking to representatives at the fairs, </p><p>doing online research and making </p></li><li><p>calls to admissions to gain more </p><p>information are ways to show that </p><p>interest. </p><p>Get Advice </p><p>When putting together a list of </p><p>potential campuses to attend, </p><p>applicants should have some schools </p><p>they're confident of getting into and </p><p>some that they aspire to but where </p><p>they have more limited chances of </p><p>being accepted. That doesn't mean </p><p>they should leave off competitive </p><p>schools and settle for less, but </p><p>applicants should be realistic about </p><p>their chances of getting into their </p><p>choices. </p></li><li><p>To help understand the intricate </p><p>process of finding the right colleges </p><p>for your youngsters, it helps to get as </p><p>much advice as possible. The "right </p><p>fit" is a term that college officials </p><p>often use to describe </p><p>whether prospective students will be </p><p>happy in the learning and cultural </p><p>environment of their schools. </p><p>Trying to figure out what path to take </p><p>to college may be helped by getting </p><p>some insight from phone psychics </p><p>who see beyond the nuts and bolts of </p><p>a situation. The advice could point </p><p>your family in the right direction by </p><p>offering the best psychic reading that </p><p>answers many of your questions. </p><p></p></li><li><p>Help Teens Be Responsible </p><p>Think of applying to college as your </p><p>children's first responsibility as adults. </p><p>That means meeting application </p><p>deadlines and working with their </p><p>college counselors to get documents </p><p>in order, but take the lead to make </p><p>sure everything gets done. </p><p>While college counselors at most </p><p>schools will submit transcripts and </p><p>recommendations from teachers, your </p><p>students have to ask for the </p><p>recommendations, submit their </p><p>college test scores and help you work </p><p>on financial aid applications. Be sure </p><p>to have them send thank you notes to </p></li><li><p>counselors and teachers who took </p><p>time to recommend them. </p><p>With the high cost of a college </p><p>education, you should also explore </p><p>financial aid options available at the </p><p>schools that interest your teens. Some </p><p>colleges will meet as much as 100 </p><p>percent of the need through a mix of </p><p>scholarships, work study jobs and </p><p>loans. Stay on top of financial aid </p><p>application deadlines because early </p><p>responders have a greater chance of </p><p>getting the aid they need. When </p><p>colleges can only offer a certain </p><p>amount, you'll have to plan the </p><p>finances needed to make up the </p><p>remainder. </p></li><li><p>For more details consult an online </p><p>psychic, to get a tested Psychic Visit: </p><p>Best Psychic </p><p></p></li></ul>
